This one-hour session will provide an in-depth review of electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) with substantive changes for the 2019 performance year. The webinar is scheduled on Wednesday, February 27th from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET. At the end of this eCQMs with substantive changes session, participants will be able to:
You can now check the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Participation Status Tool to view your eligibility status for the 2019 performance period under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Enter your National Provider Identifier (NPI), to find out if you need to participate in MIPS during the 2019 performance year.
ASCO has been informed that some oncology practices and providers in the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) have received inaccurate payment adjustments as a result of Medicare Part B drug costs incorrectly being included in the adjustments. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is also aware of the error and is working to resolve the issue. ASCO is in contact with CMS and will continue to keep members informed as a solution is implemented.
Reimbursement cuts in certain oncology specialties. Consolidated payments for certain E&M services. Reduced reimbursement for new Medicare Part B drugs. These are some of the changes coming to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and the Quality Payment Program this year. In the latest ASCO in Action Podcast, ASCO CEO Dr. Clifford A. Hudis discusses these changes and what this may mean for your oncology practice.
